Halloween is coming in hot. So, it is time to get planning your Halloween costume and makeup. While we are busy doing that, we cannot forget our pets. It's important not to exclude our furry friends, especially when the stores and online are filled with the cutest pet Halloween costumes. And we're talking viral, awwwww-inducing adorable costumes.
Halloween might traditionally be about frightening things, but it is difficult to make our cats and dogs look that scary. Even if you try to put a dog or cat in a creepy Halloween costume, it will likely end up just looking adorable. You can thank their big eyes, wet noses, and adorable grins for that. And when you put your pet in something that is meant to be cute, it is guaranteed everyone who sets eyes on him/her will be cooing. That is Halloween success in our books. Here are 20 of the cutest pet Halloween costumes that will win Halloween for you and your fur babies.
Who has been a bad boy? Your dog, by the looks of this adorable costume. Of course, we know that Fido hasn't been that B-A-D. We get that pet owners will not be able to resist putting their pooches into this fun Halloween costume. Just think of all the Instagram potential. If your dog loses the hat and/or isn't down to wear it, the message still comes through loud and clear because of the stripes. (Know that the hat does have an elastic band to help it stay secure on all dogs' uniquely-shaped heads.) Furthermore, "Bad to the bone" is written on the back of the shirt as well as "Bad Dog" on the hat. The costume is available in sizes small to extra-large so all of the doggies can go to the jailhouse.

Are you dying? We definitely are. It doesn't matter if you have seen this gag about animals "holding" something a thousand times. It is still absolutely hilarious. If you are someone who is constantly getting packages delivered to your house, you will have even more of an appreciation for this one. Similarly, it is a funny costume to put your dog in, especially if your pooch loathes anyone who comes to the door. FYI: The costume is in fact fully licensed and the fake arms have Velcro to hold the box in place. You cannot really tell from the photo, but the visor has a chin strap to keep it secure when your dog starts dashing around the house in search of treats.

This has to be one of the cutest pet Halloween costumes for all critters. Going to the doctor wouldn't be quite as bad if you got to see this kitty, right? Well, you know what we mean. Only have a dog? The costume will work for pooches, too. It's available in sizes extra-small to large so everyone can get in on the Halloween fun. The stethoscope and collar are cleverly printed on the cotton costume so there's no risk of your pet eating them. But, we would keep an eye on that bag and those fake arms, if we were you. The Cat/Dog Doctor might be tempted to perform an operation, if you know what we mean.

We understand that some pets aren't into getting dressed up. Putting a collar on some four-legged friends can be a challenge. So, the idea of putting a tutu and wig on them can be out of the question. (We don't want to stress them out after all!) So, this minimalist costume is a good option. It might be simple, but it is oh-so-sweet. You can turn your dog/cat/rabbit into a real life Beanie Baby thanks to the TY tag. The tag is available in sizes extra-small to extra-large (3.5 inches to 9.5 inches). This isn't an official product, but everyone will know exactly the look you are trying to achieve. It is something that you could even DIY.

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! If you are someone who is absolutely obsessed with everything Halloween, you probably don't consider it to be a proper Halloween bash unless a Beetlejuice reference is involved. And you cannot get much better than a pet Beetlejuice costume. Dare we say that the dog is working that zany hair and black and white striped suit between than Michael Keaton? The wig might be a bit limp when you take it out of the package. The instructions state that you can achieve this same hair-raising effect with hairspray and a comb. We suggest prestyling the wig before putting it on Fido. It will be easier that way. Trust us.

It is a pet's expression that really takes a playful Halloween costume to the next level, but having a great costume is still essential. This nurse pet costume absolutely slays. It is one of the cutest pet Halloween costumes. Guys, it has a hat and it is pink with lace. It might not be the most traditional nurse's uniform, but it is a hilarious nod to some of the ridiculous sexy nurse Halloween costumes we see for humans. If you have more than one pet, you can create a four-legged hospital (veterinary?) staff with this costume and the aforementioned doctor one. The nurse look comes in sizes extra-small to large to get everyone involved. Just think of the photos.
Disney Halloween costumes are always popular. If you like to play into the theme on October 31st, you can also get your pet involved. This Toy Story costume is right on trend.

Crucially, they have been made pet-friendly so your doggy won't destroy his/her snazzy outfit. After Halloween, your dog can wear the red bandana as part of his/her "everyday" look.

You are probably scared AF of Pennywise from IT. (Who isn't?!) However, this amazing pet costume inspired by the character has none of those terrifying vibes. In fact, it is equal parts hilarious and cute. It might have the creepy red balloon (refashioned into a pet-friendly soft toy), but it is not sinister. That hair is amazing. And the ruffles and pompoms are back being the sweet details that they are meant to be. If you are wondering, the pet Halloween costume is officially licensed. Additionally, it comes in sizes small to extra-large. Alas, the look does not come with Bill Skarsgård.
We think about fruit a lot in terms of our personal fashion. We do not think about it as much in relation to Halloween costumes, especially ones for our pets. Hopefully this fun pineapple pet costume will change things. It is so amusing. If your pooch is used to wearing a raincoat, you should not have any trouble getting this costume on. It is a very similar design to a rain jacket, but with the addition of a fancy headpiece to represent the leaves of a pineapple. There is even a hole in the back neck for collars and leashes so you can parade your pineapple dog on the street on October 31. He/she will get plenty of looks and photos.

There will always be Halloween costumes inspired by viral moments from the past few months. But, all the meme and pop culture-inspired looks shouldn't distract us from the classic Halloween offerings. There is a reason why they are classics. Take witches, ghosts, pumpkins, and of course Frankenstein. The last one has been given a dog makeover for this Frankenpup costume. And we are so here for it. This little fella is working the costume particularly well, but we have no doubt that your dog will do the same. It is hard to choose a favorite part. The neck bones are so appropriate. The exaggerated shoulders are quite fashion forward. And that hair though. The dog tag reads "Pup-n-Stein." Love it.
Here is another pet Halloween costume that will delight all Star Wars fans. Even if the Star Wars reference goes over your head, you will definitely still get a kick out of the look. Rider pet costumes will do that to you. Another fantastic thing about this style of costume is that it is easier to get on. You just place the hat on the head and the Sand Person rider on the dog's back. Then you fasten everything on. There's no need to worry about sleeves or boots. Just be aware that some doggies might not be cool with having something on their back and they might try to throw the load off. You have been warned.

Presenting the most hipster cat in the world. This is Instagram gold. Furthermore, it is one of the cutest pet Halloween costumes because it tells a story. Just admiring the photo, you can practically see the cat strumming the guitar and crooning some soulful lyrics. We know that would never actually happen, but you can blame it on the round sunglasses, guitar, and striped shirt for making us think that. Dogs can also get in on the fun, too. The look can be adapted for different four-legged friends. (The costume is available in sizes small to extra-large.) Note that the hat and sunglasses are extras. The base costume is the outfit, which is comprised of the striped top and white shorts combo with the fake arms holding the guitar. If you want other extras, you might want to consider a trendy wig.

Your dog doesn't have to be named Angel to rock this costume. Actually, your pooch's behavior doesn't even need to be considered angelic for him/her to sport this look. After all, Halloween is about dressing up and enjoying a little bit of fantasy. The lace headpiece is a nice alternative to the expected tall halo. The daintier wings are less cumbersome so they hopefully won't get in your pooch's way when he/she wants to dash across the yard. This is another instance where you could easily turn this look into a group costume with other animals and/or humans. Everyone can be angels or you can try adding some devils into the mix.

There is just something about animals dressing up as other animals and other animal-like characters that warms our hearts. This Piglet Halloween costume can be included in it. It wins for one of the cutest pet Halloween costumes because the Winnie the Pooh character makes us smile wide. Your doggy might already have big, floppy ears, but they are no comparison to the ears on this Piglet costume. Those ears are larger than life. The hood shouldn't be heavy because it is made of a soft material. And keeping your pet comfortable is the most important thing when choosing a costume. Get the look in sizes small to extra-large.
If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you will definitely see the similarities between this brilliant costume and certain characters on the show. It isn't officially modeled after anyone or the show in particular, but the similarities between Lady Olenna Tyrell, aka the Queen of Thorns, are strong. Just look at the crown and headpiece. Some might also liken it to Daenerys Targaryen thanks to the costume's included white-blonde wig. All in all, it is a look fit for a royal pooch. You might think that the pearl necklace is a collar, but it is actually a trompe l'oeil print on the blue dress. That means pet owners don't have to worry about their dogs choking on any beads.
Gah! Get ready to have a hilarious Halloween with this walking teddy bear pet costume. Forget about teaching your dog to walk on his/her hind legs. You can make things easier on everyone by creating the effect with the clever suit. It tricks the eye into thinking that your dog can walk on two legs. It takes the effect further by giving the impression that your pooch is a walking teddy bear. LOL What more could you ask for? Oh, there are plenty of sizes to pick from. It comes in extra-small to 3X. We see you, big boys.

Bring a little bit of Hawaii to Halloween wherever you are with this playful pet costume. You probably weren't expecting to merge Halloween and Hawaii. And we bet that you weren't anticipating it would involve dogs. Yet, when you see the costume you realize how amazing it is. It is a bit predictable to see humans rocking their coconut shells and grass skirts on October 31. But it feels fresh and looks so sweet to see dogs doing it. There is no need to stress about cup sizes. The costume is simply sized from small to extra-large. Bandwidths? Pah.
